How to Make Taco Bags

  1. Cooking meat. Fry the meat on the stove in a large pan with chopped onions and green pepper. After cooking, mix the salsa, taco seasoning, salt and pepper together.
  2. Combine. Place the pie dough on a flat surface and trim off the rounded edges to make a rectangular shape. Then divide it into 6 rectangles. Place 3-4 spoons of meat in the middle of each pie dough, then add a slice of cheese to each. Cover the tops with another rectangular piece of pie dough (this will help the piece stretch slightly before adding). Then, press the edges down and glue them together with a fork. Drill 9 holes in each taco pocket.
  3. To bake. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350 ° F for about 20 to 25 minutes. The bowl should be kind and golden. Then serve it as a starter in your favorite salsa or as a main course on a bed of lettuce with extra sauce.

Cooking tips + types

  • Flesh. Feel free to switch meat with Salsa chicken or sweet pork. You can even use ground turkey instead of beef to lighten it up a bit.
  • Cheese. We usually always have cheese sticks on hand and it's very simple to portion this recipe. However, if you prefer, you can definitely use grated cheese. Add about 2 tablespoons per taco pocket.
  • Cake crust. I'm using a pre-made, store-bought pie dough for convenience, but you can definitely make your own homemade pie crust If you want. This is the great recipe for using leftover cake that you saved in the freezer.
  • Don't overcrowd. Make sure you don't put too much meat in the centers. There should be around 3 to 4 tablespoons at a time.
  • Drill holes. Just before cooking, drill about 9 holes in each taco pocket so that they don't burst during cooking.

Freezing + warming up

If you have leftovers, you can definitely freeze them for later. They are great for a snack or dinner and almost remind me of a warm bag! Wrap each taco bag in foil and place it in an airtight bag or container in the freezer. Place on a baking sheet to heat up and cover with foil (to avoid burns). Then bake in the oven at 350 ° F for about 20 minutes or until fully heated.
